World Business: Egypt Desalination -- 29/04/2011 | PBS

Duration: 05:07
Program: World Business
Broadcast Date: Apr. 29, 2011

World Business: The political unrest in Egypt at the start of the year saw tourists fleeing the country in their thousands and revenue for 2011 is predicted to be down by 25%. Visitors have started to return, albeit in smaller numbers, to the relief of an industry which accounts for 11 percent of the Egyptian economy. Yet this presents a problem in itself. Egypt exists in a state of water poverty and to fill the pools that attract the tourists the country is turning to desalination. Reporter: Jon Lamberton
